With the opening of the Digital CoLab, Olin Library has established a physical space for collaborative work in the digital humanities. But why do the digital humanities need a space, let alone conferences, at all? We can see this movement happening outside of academia as well where digital, global networks have collected into hallmark centers; with trendy coworking spaces opening in major metropolitan areas and Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Google’s opening new campuses, the image of group computational work anchored to an iconic, single space has become both commonplace and powerful. What does the lab model, whether it be repurposing a single room or building a flagship campus, tell us about the state of the digital humanities?

Supernatural Studies is a peer-reviewed journal that promotes rigorous yet accessible scholarship in the growing field of representations of the supernatural. The breadth of “the supernatural” as a category creates the potential for interplay among otherwise disparate individual studies that will ideally produce not only new work but also increased dialogue and new directions of scholarly inquiry. To that end, the editorial board welcomes submissions employing any theoretical perspective or methodological approach and engaging with any period and representations including but not limited to those in literature, film, television, video games, and other cultural texts and artifacts.
